Considered a pepper, passion berry is a spice with a taste so close to passion fruit that it bears its name. It comes from Ruta chalepensis, commonly known as Rue de Chalep, a flowering vegetable and medicinal plant cultivated in tropical Africa and more particularly in Ethiopia. It is best developed between 1,500 and 2,000 meters above sea level, in full sun. Known since ancient times for its many virtues, all parts of the plant are eaten. The leaves offer a powerful, aromatic and sweet fragrance; as for the berries, their taste is more pronounced and slightly peppery. In the Ethiopian medicinal tradition, the plant acts as a panacea. It is commonly used for its antispasmodic, circulatory tonic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and insect repellent properties
